Eagles change soda sponsors

Since Lincoln Financial Field opened in 2003, the operative phrase at the concession window has been, “No Coke.  Pepsi.

In 2012, Coke returns.

According to Terry Lefton of SportsBusiness Journal, the Eagles will announce Thursday that the franchise has changed its official soda sponsorship from Pepsi back to Coke.

Lefton writes that roughly 20 teams have soda deals, with the Steelers recently switching to Pepsi after a half-century with Coke.

The change at the Eagles’ home stadium already has been made, with folks at the concession window who attended events in early June hearing, “No Pepsi.  Coke.”

    Maybe Reid argued that it’s easier to wash down a half dozen hoagies with Coke instead of Pepsi.

    For christ sakes it is 2012. Can we not sell both drinks? I hate going somewhere and ordering a Pepsi and being told we only serve Coke products.

    One of these teams needs to exclusively sell Stewart’s root beer and cream soda at Coke prices… Bud is always good.

    Always liked Pepsi better but it doesn’t matter. I don’t go to the games to drink soda.

    Surely Andy Reid’s sons agree with this change……

    Didn’t Reid threaten to walk away if Lurie didn’t give him more power in the day to day operations? Maybe this was it. Eat that conspiracy theorists.
